Bionic eye to restore human vision

GERMANY: In a major breakthrough, German scientists 've developed a device for the eyesight treatment by which three blind patients were able to see any object. The scientists 've developed an eye implant, which allows people to identify objects, who are suffering from inherited blindness.

The inherited blindness called retinitis pigmentosa that damages people's vision & pushes into the world of darkness forever. Around 200,000 people every year used to get affected by such eye hereditary disease. But the new eye implant is possible at the back of the eye.

The research published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, can be described as a revolution in the electronic retinal implant. The study led by the director of Retinal Implant AG, Eberhart Zrenner, said further experiment will be done with more patients across Europe. According to experts, the bionic eye could restore human vision by finding out age-related macular degeneration, the most common cause of blindness in old age, which is incurable & affects around 500,000 British people.
